Boron deficiency in tomato

  • These boron-deficient leaves show light general chlorosis.
  • These deficiency symptoms are similar to those caused by calcium deficiency.
  • The leaves are unusually brittle and tend to break easily.
  • Also, there is often a wilting of the younger leaves even under an adequate water supply, pointing to a disruption of water transport caused by boron deficiency.
  • Correction measure: Foliar spray of boron 20% EDTA @ 200 gm/acre.
